My sister and I had such a good time here. It wasn't crowded and we comfortably took in the whole place in just a couple hours. Highly recommended for pop culture loving TV-holics like myself

This museum is made for the fans of nostalgic marketing and advertising. I love the place.

Exhibits are on the second and third floor. I liked the TV exhibits on the third floor, including Svengoolie and the special Johnnie Carson Exhibit. Radio was on the second floor, mostly plaques on the wall. I think there could have been more done on this floor.

There were multiple exhibits in a smallish area. All had sound going at the same time. Some exhibits were so loud you could hear it all throughout the floor. Some had virtually nonexistent sound, maybe you could hear it if your head was next to the screen. The overhead sound collectors worked very sketchily - if you moved your head, they would stop. We went for the Johnny Carson exhibit - it was very underwhelming. I wouldn't bother again. We were the only people in the whole place.

What a great walk through history, especially Chicago Broadcast history! LOVED the Bozo, Gar and Ray exhibit. Having grown up with those classic Chicago tv shows, as well as BJ's Gigglesnort Hotel, the exhibit brought back so many memories! We also loved the Johnny Carson exhibit, and the walk down memory lane through other old classic tv shows. This was my son's choice for his 13th birthday celebration, and he particularly loved it! Thanks for making his milestone a perfect day!
